My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Montana.
My employers Insurance Company Liberty Mutual has informed me that the doctor that did my Impairment Rating gave me a 10% Impairment. Then they said that they wanted to get a second opinion because the case worker nurse said that the doctor seamed to be distracted while doing the evaluation. Is this O.K.? What if the new rating comes back lower than the last one? Can they use that one instead? Or do they have to use the higher of the two. Am I wrong in thinking that they are hoping for a lower IR?
